A Fresh Start

For my second entry in the Unity {Show & Tell} Sketch challenge
I selected their New Life stamp set.


The image is stamped on Bright White Neenah card stock and copic colored. I used several metallic pens for accenting. I actually used the shape of the stamp to trim for the extra border around the flowers.  Scraps of yellow and a wood grain paper were used for the background papers.  The sentiment was also stamped on Neenah card stock and then I added the metal ladybug charm and a few dots of bling in the bottom of the jar.  I used a chocolate brown thin twine to tie around the image before adhering to the Kraft card base.
This card will also be submitted as my 'card with a bug' for ATCM.

Beautiful Belle

Today's featured card is using a new stamp by
Rubbernecker Stamps.
Belle, (670-01) is absolutely eloquent and makes a lovely card.
There were several 'ladies of the 50's' at the Scrapbooking Expo
where I purchased my stamp, and believe me, it was 
extremely hard to decide which one to select!


I selected shades of pink for this card and will be using it for a birthday greeting.  Once I finished the front, I decided any sentiment on the front would be distracting with this layout, so I elected to do my sentiment stamping inside.  
The possibilities are endless with this beautiful lady!

To My Brilliant Friend

Unity {Show & Tell} has a new challenge posted and 
this time it's a sketch card.
Sketch cards are not my favorite thing to do,
but I've been trying not let them 
intimidate me and go for it!




I started with a Kraft card base and orange embossed background
mat.  I added a left over edge of black doily under the floral strip, 
then wrapped with a green metallic thread. 
Unity's Angie Girl, Aleah seemed perfect for the fall colors
I wanted to use for this card.
After Copic coloring and edging with the YR23, I used foam 
tape to raise the image above the embossed background
paper and the floral printed strip.
I love using the 'bowed' sentiment technique that my friend Janet 
taught me. Then the sentiment was finished with two enamel dots by Gina Marie Designs. 

Thank you for stopping by today and following my blog.
